CATAWBA ISLAND TOWNSHIP, Ohio — An ice rescue training exercise unexpectedly turned into reality Saturday when a local firefighter fell during a drill and was taken to the hospital.
The U.S. Coast Guard and more than two dozen local agencies participated in a full-scale disaster drill on frozen Lake Erie, simulating the crash landing of a commuter plane near Marblehead to test coordinated emergency response. More than 250 people participated.
